This is an actual Broadcast from New Year's 1966 unedited and you hear everything just like you did back in 1966! This show is from WLS AM Radio 890 in Chicago, with Art Roberts at the Microphone! Along with the great tunes of that era you will also hear some local and World Newscasts and jingles and vintage ads.
